ORIGINAL SITE (2010)
- In 2010-2011 School Year, I built this site for my Technology class at Miami Norland Sr. High School during the 2010-2011 Miami-Dade County Public School Year. Apart of the Academy of Information Technology, I wanted an online portfolio for my students that stayed with me from 9th grade through graduation.
I continuously added and upgraded the website throughout the 2010-2011 school year as new needs became evident. Ganttech.com became a really valuable resource that allowed me to take my teaching strategies to a new level.
- During the 2011-2012 school year, my prior years students were excited to see they could still access all their work from the previous year. My Web Design 1 class students during the 1st class logged on to show the students what they created on my website. Each student that takes my Web Design course I provided with an actual web presence on Ganttech.com to hold all the websites they created. What has started out as a online portfolio for my students has become so much more and changed the way I teach Introduction to Information Technology (Microsoft Office), Digital Design(Photoshop), Web Design (Dreamweaver), and Programming (Flash), AP Computer Science (Java, Game & App Design (Android & Apple Mobile Development).
- In 2013-14, I updated the site to a course template that anyone could subsribe to a course that I have taught. This online course offerings will allow others to go at their own pace to learn the various classes that I teach.
- In 2015-16, I updated the site to include Google login, Google Drive, G-Mail, and Student Portfolios
